Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been married for nearly five years, which is almost like five decades in the crazy world of celebrity culture. They seem genuinely committed to each other and to the family they have built, and although they often decorate the covers of tabloid magazines, there are rarely legitimate rumors of problems between the couple. There are several reasons why Kardashian and West have remained such a solid force.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were friends first
Kardashian and West returned at least in the early 2000s. The two met for the first time when Kardashian was married to her first husband, music producer Damon Thomas, and West was trying to get her first big break in the music business.
The two become fast friends and keep in touch for the next ten years. It has been reported that West has long been amazed at the Kardashian, but it wasn't until 2012 that things became a romantic affair between the two.
After they began dating, Kardashian and West moved quickly. By 2014, they were married and have a daughter: Northwest. They now have a total of four children, multiple businesses and many personal and professional engagements.
Throughout their daily lives, madness can both count on one another and on the solid foundation of the friendship they established so many years ago.
Kim Kardashian was married twice before
Another reason that Kardashian and West work so well together is the simple fact that they both know what works and what doesn't work in one relationship. Kardashian was actually married twice before her marriage to West, and though her two previous marriages were brief, they were full of drama.
Kardashian married Thomas when he was only 19 years old and was reportedly full of drama. Kardashian claimed that Thomas controlled and even raped her. The two married in 2000 but divorced in 2003, with the divorce being finalized in 2004.
Kardashian's second marriage came at the height of her fame. In 2010, she began dating basketball player Chris Humphries and after a brief courtship, they married in August 2011. The wedding was filmed for the family reality show. In part, this may be due to the staggering amount of media attention they received, but after only 72 days of marriage they split. It was after his split with Humphries that Kardashian turned to his old friend West for support and understanding. And by chance she found her soulmate.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West always support each other
Although it may have taken years for Kardashian and the West to finally get together when they did, it clicked from the beginning. In a 2015 interview, Kardashian states that her only regret is that she did not get along with the West earlier because it would "save so much BS." She said she felt as if she had "gotten the talk. "
These days, Kardashian and the West have come closer than ever and only ever have additional things to say about the other partner. They never bump into the media to get attention and just seem to have love and devotion for each other.
The Kardashian family definitely supports the couple and fully believes that the West is "the one" for the Kardashian for a fun reason: Because he is the only one who is ready to sit with her for hours by the wardrobe as she tries with great variety from the toilets. The Kardashian-Jenner family often shares photos of the two on social media, praising the West's love and devotion to the Kardashian and calling the two "pairs of goals."
